Small place. The singer could not sing live that day because she was cold and she was coughing pretty much. I totally understand that but then u should get another price or cancel the show. It was very expensive for what we got. Pretty much...More

Joined only for the delicious tea and pudding. Introductory comments to the art of chinese opera were made and proved to be very useful to take most of this experience. Only issue was some members of the Theather speaking during the presentation....they should be more...More

There was a final total of six patrons inclusive. We had a set Chinese meal which was fine and the whole feeling was of sitting in someone’s dining room having their home-cooked meal. It was a nice ambience. After a hour a leader of the...More

The food was good. But the performance was too short. The performer spent about 3/4 of the time doing presentation and only about 15 mins performance. The performance was good though and I wish they have it longer.

Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling
sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its
blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an
Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit
almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony
continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to
the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.
